The Beach Boys to tour for single's 50th anniversary

The Beach Boys' Mike Love

The Beach Boys will embark on a tour to mark the 50th anniversary of their single 'Fun Fun Fun'.

The 'Good Vibrations' hitmakers have announced they will be celebrating the landmark anniversary of their 1964 track by reuniting for a number of shows in the United States and the United Kingdom, and percussionist Mike Love has confessed they're doing it for their fans.

He said: ''Year after year, it's been a great source of inspiration to see the happiness our music has brought to multiple generations of Beach Boys fans in so many parts of the world.''

The band will introduce singer and guitarist Jeffrey Foskett, who's worked with the group since 1981, as a permanent member of the group as they begin their tour in Louisville, Kentucky on May 24 followed by a number of performances at European festivals, including two shows at London's Hampton Court Palace in June.

Foskett replaces Love's son Christian who left the band to pursue a solo career, and the official line-up for the anniversary tour will include Love, Foskett, David Marks and founding members Al Jardine and Brian Wilson.

The band previously reunited in 2012 to mark the 50th anniversary of the group itself.
